Andrew Hastie dare raises the Chinese Question

Last night, Andrew Hastie used his parliamentary privilege to accuse businessman Dr Chau Chak Wing of bribery. The Chinese-Australian has donated 4 million dollars to the Australian Liberal and Labor parties, and these developments have raised broader concerns about ongoing Chinese influence in our media, universities and politics. Before one addresses the scope of these intrusions… Continue reading Andrew Hastie dare raises the Chinese Question

America lurches closer to a new war in Syria

After President Trump accused ‘Animal Assad’ of committing another chemical weapons attack, a fresh media clamour for Western intervention in Syria began. But is the President falling for another false flag? One year ago President Assad was universally condemned for his alleged chemical weapons attack, and President Trump responded by launching 57 symbolic cruiser missile… Continue reading America lurches closer to a new war in Syria

Malcolm Turnbull’s submission to China

Last year, I highlighted the problem of infinitely expanding trade with China. And suggested that in a trade deal where Australia is flooded with cheap, disposable products, while China gets jobs and wealth, China comes out as the clear winner. Likewise, it appeared that when push came to shove, China would exercise a stranglehold over… Continue reading Malcolm Turnbull’s submission to China

The UN’s Assault On Our Sovereignty

While I was suspicious of Australia’s ascension to the UN Human Rights Council in October, this organisation’s recent behaviour confirms these concerns. Clearly, the Human Rights Council as well as the UN more generally, is not interested in genuine human rights, freedom, or transnational cooperation. Rather, it forces neo- Marxist, globalist agendas down the throats… Continue reading The UN’s Assault On Our Sovereignty

Red Lines & Lost Credibility

Sometimes the simple lessons which can be drawn from international affairs, are better. So one of the most important steps in justifying a non- interventionist foreign policy, involves assessing whether overseas wars generally achieve the goals they originally set out to. The United States along with other Western countries, once united to destroy supposed chemical weapons… Continue reading Red Lines & Lost Credibility

US Now Admits Syrian “Rebels” Have Used Chemical Weapons

The propaganda of war is something to behold. Back in April, the world branded Bashar Al- Assad a human rights abuser of the worst sort in purportedly using chemical weapons. And under this near- universally held pretext, interventionists cheered on Trump’s impulsive missile strikes into Syria. While it is thankful a greater world war was… Continue reading US Now Admits Syrian “Rebels” Have Used Chemical Weapons

Australia’s imminent election to the UN Human Rights Council

After years of lobbying, Australia will be elected to an influential subsidiary of the UN General Assembly: the Human Rights Council. Julie Bishop, the globalist, UN sycophant has claimed “Australia will bring a principled and pragmatic approach to our term on the Human Rights Council.” But it remains unclear if this ascension will serve Australia’s… Continue reading Australia’s imminent election to the UN Human Rights Council

Cory Bernardi slams wasteful foreign spending in the Senate

The Aussie Conservative Blog supports the tenacious, principled, consistently conservative political activism of Cory Bernardi, along with his Australian Conservatives party. And in his recent speech, Bernardi is more than correct: how can a nation continue to fund futile, globalist economic endeavours, while we are incapable of pulling our own finances into order? We hear… Continue reading Cory Bernardi slams wasteful foreign spending in the Senate

President’s Trump’s new strategy for Afghanistan

After President Trump announced his new strategy for Afghanistan, we saw yet another reversal from the campaign promises once made, via imminent troop increases to this godforsaken land. Some may criticize this shift as unfaithful, whereas some may laud it as demonstrating necessary flexibility. But the pertinent, unanswered questions remain: will it work, stabilize Afghanistan, and… Continue reading President’s Trump’s new strategy for Afghanistan

President Trump’s brash escalation with North Korea

Speaking to reporters at a New Jersey golf course, President Trump promised to unleash ‘fire and fury like the world has never seen’ on North Korea, should it continue to threaten the United States. And yet, the North Korean response spoke volumes as to the extraordinary improvidence of Trump’s remarks. Almost hours later, the regime… Continue reading President Trump’s brash escalation with North Korea

We need to talk about Julie

The Spectator Australia, by Tina Faulk, May 13, 2017: There is a news picture of Foreign Minister Julie Bishop that sticks in my mind. Bishop, lithe, agile (that word again!) jogs, smiling and confident, with her sweaty, be-suited Chinese bodyguard in his polished leather shoes, toiling behind, on an official visit to China. There’s another one too, Bishop, fetchingly… Continue reading We need to talk about Julie

More British troops could be on their way to Afghanistan as Nato considers mission boost

As more NATO troops are heading to Afghanistan, and with Australian military personnel still remaining in this tormented land, the million dollar question which has eluded Western leaders since 2001 still remains: what would/does victory in Afghanistan look like? At what point in time, will NATO decide mission is accomplished in Afghanistan? Would this be when Afghanistan becomes a democracy,… Continue reading More British troops could be on their way to Afghanistan as Nato considers mission boost

The possibility of free movement between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom

In the aftermath of Brexit, CANZUK International has proposed establishing freedom of movement between the countries of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom (CANZUK). If realized, this proposal would see CANZUK citizens all obtaining the right to live, work and study in any CANZUK country. The framers of this potential agreement have considered the existing Trans- Tasman Travel Arrangement… Continue reading The possibility of free movement between Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom

The case against war with North Korea

Recent reports have suggested that should North Korea conduct another nuclear weapons test, the United States may respond by attacking their country in a preemptive strike. Whether or not these reports are correct, such a move against North Korea–the desolate, archaic, pariah state–appears foolish. While Kim Jong- un seems mentally unhinged, and may indeed be seeking to escalate… Continue reading The case against war with North Korea

The future for India- Australia relations?

While I don’t wish our foreign policy to be purely based upon idealism or measures of democratic health, the future for Australia- India relations should be bright considering our historic and current similarities. While written in 2014, the following article provides an interesting insight into the state of contemporary Indian politics and of the nation’s leader:… Continue reading The future for India- Australia relations?
